Q & A: What Does Reverend Deal Say?

‘I love you and there’s nothing you can do’

     Question: What did Jesus Christ say about the commandments?

     Answer: This is an excellent question. The Bible says that God Himself wrote on two tablets of stone the 10 Commandments.  In anger Moses broke the set of stone tablets.  God, once again inscribed on stone tablets the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 10:1-4). Jesus was asked: Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus answered: Thou shall love the Lord God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 22:36-40). What Jesus was saying is that’ love is paramount to anything else imaginable’. Amen.

 After the original 10 Commandments from God man had written approximately 613 additional commandments. Why were so many commandments written by men? II Timothy 3:2 says’ For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money…’ Man has a propensity to clarify God’s word. God’s word is truth and does not need changing. If the situation feels good, let’s make a law. That is how heresies started.

   1 John 4:8 says ‘ He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love’. God is love. That is a powerful statement. In Romans 8:37-39 Paul says that’ nothing can separate God’s love from us’. I heard the comedian George Wallace close a concert with these words:” I love you and there is nothing you can do about it.” Those words are exactly what God is saying to us. For additional reading: 1 John 4:20; Ephesians 3:19; Exodus 31:18; Exodus 32:15.
